Since 2007, Sound Advice has listed the four communication options for families whose children are deaf, to ensure families make fully informed decisions on their childrens’ behalf. Our e-book, “Teaching A Deaf Child To Hear And Speak… Perfectly!” also guides families wanting to build auditory-verbal therapy (AVT) into everyday routines for everyone’s benefit.
First #AVTchat session
On October 14th 2015, Sound Advice hosted the first #AVTchat session to explore what AVT is, and the challenges families face in accessing much-needed services in Ireland.

Over the coming weeks, Sound Advice will host more #AVTchat sessions to explore the family-based approach in greater depth and to identify areas where collaboration is needed. Several participants this week were Twitter chat newbies – talk about learning, as you go!
